Proudly Serving the City of Angels
With California widely recognized as a leading state in terms of environmental pro-activity, it only follows that Los Angeles should have a strong desire to establish itself as a leading ‘Green’ city. In fact, over the years, the infamous smog that enveloped the city is lifting as air quality improves, and Los Angeles recycling campaigns have resulted in a sharp decrease in the volume of garbage sent to landfills.
This has a lot to do with the concerted efforts that the California state government has made since the early 1990s, and its mandate to its municipalities to reduce the waste their citizens are producing. In 2007, the ‘It’s Our L.A! Keep It Clean’ campaign was launched, compelling retail and grocery stores to provide recycling bins.
And, with Los Angeles one of a limited number of cities across the US that is actively recycling the unpopular 3 – 7 grades of plastics (like polyvinyl chloride, LDPE, plypropylene, polystyrene, polycarbonate and ABS), recycling in Los Angeles – both in terms of awareness and activity – is now at an all-time high.
For over a decade, Northwest Polymers have been providing plastic recycling expertise to the commercial and industrial sectors in Los Angeles. This has not only provided them with an opportunity to contribute to the overall drive towards a ‘Green’ city, but has also given them a chance into reduce costs and increase revenue.
While in the city of Los Angeles, recycle companies are happy to set up bottle banks, curb-side collections and other methods where the public donate their plastic waste, we understand the costs that businesses incur in handling their scrap plastic.
That is why we buy and collect the waste that would otherwise need to be sent to a landfill, thereby generating revenue to put back into the company and removing the expense associated with transporting the plastic to a landfill site.
Our services guarantee that your plastic waste is responsibly processed and recycled at our state-of-the-art recycling facility in Oregon, then sold to manufacturers to be made into new plastic products to feed market demands.
So, through Northwest Polymers services, plastic recycling in Los Angeles is truly as effective and as environmentally beneficial as it should be.
